Raw Cashew Fruit Yoghurt

Do you love yoghurt, but want to kick the dairy from your diet? Raw yoghurt is healthier, fresher and more nutritious than any dairy yoghurt. This particular yoghurt requires a little bit of preparation in advance as I use Cashew Cream as a base.

Cashew Cream
Soak 1 dl of Cashew nuts (obviously natural, not roasted or salted - but you knew that already) in water. Add water so it covers the Cashews and about 2 cm above them. Store them in your fridge over night.

Pour out some of the water and blend the Cashews to a cream-like fluid.

Raw Cashew Fruit Yoghurt
1 Apple, cut in very small pieces
1 Banana
2 dl of Cashew Cream
1 tablespoon of Pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons of Flaxseeds (Linfrön in Swedish)
1 tablespoon of Sunflower seeds
  1. Mix the apple pieces with about 1 dl of the Cashew Cream. Mix to a smooth cream.
  2. Add the Pumpkin-, Flax- and Sunflower seeds and mix. If the mix gets too thick, add more of the Cashew Cream.
  3. Add the banana and mix until smooth and yoghurt-like.
  4. Serve with some seeds and Cashews on top.
Note: Never peel Apples. A lot of nutrition gets lost by peeling Apples, but make sure you buy organic Apples (or use your own) as Apples are often victims of heavy pesticides and pesticides are pure poison to your body.
